IT'S HARD TO SUM UP THE NEBRASKA CHRISTIAN EXPERIENCE IN JUST ONE WORD...
Diversity. Unity. Ministry. These are the values our "One Body" student group promotes through a variety of entertaining and informative events such as international meals, guest speakers, visits to local cultural sites and service projects that help all members of our campus community feel welcome and connected.
community with opportunity
We are small enough to be a tightly knit community, but have relationships all over the U.S. with some of the most dynamic places to do internships and residency. We are far enough off the beaten path to be a peaceful place, but close enough to a major metropolitan area to have lots of opportunity within a short reach.
Picture a small group where everyone belongs, everyone grows, and everyone is leading...that's the unique house system of which we are all a part. To live at NCC means there not only are professors looking out for your best interest, but there are eight others in your House pulling for you. There's a place for you here.
If you are called, gifted, and passionate for ministry we don't think you should wait two years before jumping in. By the second week in Omaha you'll be paired with a partner church who is committed to showing you the real world of ministry. This gives you a quick context for what you are learning in the classroom.
Yes, it isn't easy. It's not supposed to be. The Church needs you to be ready. You only have four years to get there. But in the midst of a tough semester it is good to know that this is a place where you'll be loved. Our professors and faculty are practitioners. They've been there and done that.
Using online education and intensive week classes, NCC is able to partner with churches so that students can spend their Junior and Senior years embedded in ministry. Church leadership is learned in the field at dynamic churches as well being taught in the classroom.
As you lead, the coming challenges and realities of what you will be facing are undeniable. College anywhere is not cheap, but the Kingdom of God will be investing in you as well. Our partner churches are staffed with some of the best leaders in the country. They know what it takes. We'll get you there.
